Juventus, to sign Cristian Romero from Genoa
For the past couple of months, there were a lot of rumours about Juventus being interested in one of Serie A’s top defenders, Genoa’s Cristian Romero. And it appears that the move is about to go through!
Enrico Preziosi, Genoa’s president confirmed that the move will be completed at the end of the season, for a reported fee of around 30 million euros. This would be the club’s second big-money transfer of the season, after selling striker Krzysztof Piatek to AC Milan during the January transfer window.
“You all know that there is a negotiation in progress – Romero will go to Juventus,” Preziosi said for Primocanale.
“The sale of Piatek and that of Romero will definitely put the club’s accounts in order. The sale of Piatek, from a corporate point of view, was a very good move. Genoa’s finances are very healthy. We will have no debt to the treasury within this year.”
Cristiano Romero himself made it public that he would love to secure a move to Juventus, as he considers the Bianconerri one of the most prestigious sides of the world.
“When I was a child my dream was to become a pro, now it is to play in the Champions League with one of the four most important clubs in the world: Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United.”
A move to Juventus would be an important step forward for the player’s career, after receiving his first call-up for Argentina’s U20, which opened the gate for senior recognition.
